Most everyone is away at a training so I didn't go into the office today. I slept in, then did an hour of exercise, swept the veranda, gave myself a pedicure, did typing lessons 5 and 6, boiled water, ate an omelet. I'm energized and still sweating, still hungry. After a cloudy morning the sun is now really strong. It's slash and burn season. People are cutting down the tall dried grasses in their fields and setting them on fire. They're also burning the banks of the Nyong river and the winds carry little black fibrous ashes to my yard.
